Hey all

Don't know if this is a commonly posted bug or not.

I love the voice dictation feature. Can drive and send out messages and it works really well for me because sometimes I prefer just speaking into the phone

The thing is when I'm sending messages or texts and once it transcribes for me and I press send, it will stop transcribing my speech. The lines still wobble so it detects noise / sound when I say something, but it won't write it out anymore

Is there a command I need to speak for it to keep going ?

You shouldn't be holding your phone and searching for that dictation button for one while driving... just don't distract your eyes off the road and use Siri.

Also, that seems to be a bug. You should get into the habit of clicking done before you send so you don't get confused.

You're right, I do use a dock though so I just press it while it's like holstered. I should get a charger for the car so I can use Hey Siri
